WhatsApp, which is owned by Meta, has announced a new feature that allows users to send audio messages that can only be played once. This messaging app will receive an update, version 188.8.131.52, according to an app-tracking website. The audio messaging feature has been developed to enhance privacy and will only play once when activated.
The audio messaging feature is currently in development, and will be available in a future release. This feature will function similarly to WhatsApp’s existing view-once feature for photographs and videos, where the content can only be viewed once and cannot be saved, forwarded or recorded for added privacy.
With this new feature, audio messages sent in view-once mode cannot be saved, forwarded or recorded, making it even more secure and private for users. This would limit the possibility of someone else accessing or listening to the voice note afterwards, thus providing a higher level of privacy and security for communication.
The feature is expected to be popular among WhatsApp users who value privacy and the protection of sensitive and confidential information. It is yet another example of WhatsApp’s ongoing efforts to enhance privacy and security for its users.
